PVAS is planning a LFS trip early next year, and I think Uncle Ned's is one of the candidates. Either way, I'll let you all know where we're heading and you can meet us there

I'll go ahead and try to find a place in Northampton to meet near Yoyo's, and will set the date as December 1 if no one has any objections. Worst that I could see happening is a couple of us hang out for a bit, trade a few things, and 0live gets her mischlings...

0live, have you seen the shrimp tattooed got from my java moss? Natural colored Neos, don't know if you'd have any desire for a couple of them... not many left, though, as the gudgeons ate a lot of them lol.

0live needs her Yoyo fix, so it's gotta happen! Even if you two just show up, maybe we can just go out to eat or something to make it more worthwhile... Thinking a restaurant would be the best bet for an indoor place to have it anyway, although I still haven't found a good one :/ I'll try to make sure to get that done this weekend.

As for what I gots to trade, here is my list of plant species (some I may not have enough of to trade, just let me know if there's anything you're interested in and I'll see if I can spare any):

Alternanthera reineckii (Red Temple)
Anubias nana
Bacopa caroliniana
Bacopa lanigera
Bacopa madagascariensis
Bacopa monnieri
Bacopa salzmannii
Cabomba sp.
Chara sp.? (Stonewort)
Cryptocoryne lutea
Cryptocoryne spiralis
Cryptocoryne wendtii 'bronze'
Dracaena sanderiana (Lucky Bamboo)
Echinodorus amazonicus (Amazon sword)
Echinodorus tenellus/Helanthium tenellum (Pygmy chain sword)
Eichhornia diversifolia
Eleocharis acicularis (Dwarf hairgrass)
Eleocharis sp. (Hairgrass)
Heteranthera zosterifolia (Stargrass)
Hydrocotyle leucocephala (Brazilian pennywort)
Hygrophila difformis (Wisteria)
Hygrophila polysperma 'sunset'
Hygrophila polysperma (Dwarf hygro)
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (Micro sword)
Ludwigia repens
Marsilea quadrifolia (Four-leaf clover)
Microsorum pteropus (Java fern)
Nesaea triflora
Nymphaea odorata (White lily)
Nymphaea stellata or zenkeri (Red tiger lotus)
Nymphoides aquatica (Banana plant)
Potamogeton robbinsii (Fern pondweed)
Rotala nanjenshan
Rotala rotundifolia
Sagittaria subulata (Dwarf sag)
Taxiphyllum barbieri (Java moss)

Floaters:
Lemna minor (Duckweed)
Limnobium laevigatum (Amazon frogbit)
Pistia stratioes (Dwarf water lettuce)
Salvinia minima

HOB plants:
Chlorophytum comosum (Spider Plant)
Epipremnum aureum (Pothos)
Syngonium podophyllum (Red Arrowhead)


Can also spare some Heterandria formosa, ramshorns, gold mystery snails, a couple of those shrimp, and possibly a baby marmokrebs...

So there's a little coffee and tea shop like three doors down from Yoyo's called Sip that seems like a good place really close, but might not be enough room depending on if people are there.

And tonight I'll try to check out Northampton Brewery, which is just around the corner but I hear has couches and a lot more space...

Yeah I have a shrimp problem. I might hold off on getting some more shrimp.. I need to cut back my spending.

I just spent $$ on shrimp that were delayed in the post and arrived dead. So I'm SOL on a refund.. Keeping my spending down right now is probably not a bad idea.

That sucks
Always my fear of shipping live animals...

So does that mean you don't want to do the swap at all?

Ughh, that's terrible. What type of shrimp were they?

I ordered two nerite snails over the weekend and I'm not sure, given the current NE weather, they're going to make it to me alive.

We'll see.

Orange sunkist.. Nothing crazy, but enough to make me upset about the loss of money.

Sadly, I don't have any of those. The only Neos I have currently are Carbon Rilis and Orange Rilis are next. Otherwise, I'd help you out!

Aw.. Thanks. I appreciate it!

I do have cherries, blue velvets, wilds and yellows, so it's not like I have no shrimp to keep me happy/occupied. It's just disappointing to get a package of shrimp water.

I do want carbon rillis eventually, so maybe when you have some available we could work out a trade / sale. I understand if you don't want to.. I just don't want to go through this again.

Absolutely! I'd be more than willing to work something out. My colony needs to get a bit bigger and I definitely will.
